March "Craft & Crop" at the Bird House (Card, and pages

March 11th at 6:30pm to Midnight we will be making this card and these pages along with the purse shaped Album.

Here are the pages and our theme for this month is Spring.
 I used a lot of different techniques on these pages.

 These cute flowers where made with my Cricut die cut machine and I rolled the petals and layered them to give then that 3-D look, then put a rhinestone sicker in the center. 

I used a burlap braided ribbon I bought at Walmart for the banner rope.Then I hand cut different size strips of card stock and cut the bottom to look like flags, then layered them and used foam squares on the last layer to create this pretty banner. I found this quote on line and printed it on white card stock, cut it out and layered it with coordinating card stock and used a foam square to pop it out. The word "Spring" I cut from my Cricut die cut machine and added a little yellow flower I bought at Micheal's in a package of 15 or so, from their $1.00 ben.

On the second page I used a Martha Stewart punch. The paper I used for these pages is a K&Company card stock pack of two sided paper. I added flags that have been framed with black card stock. Then I took squares of paper and layered them for a cute design. You can see this design on the front of the paper pack. I added another quote from the Internet. When you used someones quotes if they have their name on it be sure to give them credit. If not your free to use it without the authors name.

I used pearl stickers to bling this page and I purchased them at Walmart. They are attached in strings so you can line them up easily.

Here is the cute spring card. I used white card to make my card base, layered with solid purple 1/4 smaller then the size of my card base. Then I chose this design from the same K&Company paper pack and cut it 1/4 inch smaller then the last layer and attached my ribbon first so I could fold the ends under and then attach it to the purple layer.  I found a small flower stamp I had and stamped purple flowers and on white card stock scraps. I cut squares around them and then glued them on purple scraps and cut 1/4 around them. I added a rhinestone to each flower and then attached them with foam squares. I also found a cute quote and printed it on white card stock, cut around it and then cut the end to look like a flag. Then glued it on purple scraps and attached it with a foam square and there you have it.

 Here I tried to show how the foam squares make the design of the card look 3-D.
